Reed's Metals Earns AC472 Manufacturing Quality Accreditation

ias-ac472-logoBrookhaven, MS - While commemorating 20 years of service in 2018, Reed's Metals recently was granted AC472 accreditation by the International Accreditation Service (iAS). This distinction, based on rigorous guidelines and audits, has only been granted to one other company in the state of Mississippi.

AC472 is a high quality standard program specifically written for the metal building industry and encompasses all manufacturing practices and engineering common to the industry. This is an extensive quality-controlled program audited twice a year by a third party to ensure every weld and steel is accurate and correct. It means that Reed’s Metals has gone to great lengths to ensure each customer receives quality products.

“What typically takes some companies more than a year to achieve, we have done in seven months and there’s something to be said about that," said President and Founder Bernie Reed. "Our entire team pulled together to make this happen, especially our lead rep, James Waldrop. It’s more than just a certificate for us. It’s an extended commitment to our customers and the products that we sell. We couldn’t be happier with this distinction, especially since June commemorates 20 years of service for us."
